Yea, because they couldn't have been tourists from another country or anything.

If memory serves, I think the man was wearing a Patriots sweatshirt. So no surprises there.

It is visible from Weehawken/Union City, though partially blocked by the Javits Center.

Thanks for the link.

The engadget slideshow predates the hardcore shutterbug 4/30 photos & the j-biz 5/2 photos. Hopefully somebody will fill in for the loss of j-biz in this area.

Here's a Hardcore Shutterbug 4/30 photo from the LIRR railyard looking east at the eastern portion of the Amtrak Gateway tunnel casing excavation, the remains of the LIRR MoE building & a section of the north edge of 10 HY @ right

Hardcore Shutterbug/flickr

Here's a link to a 2048x1536 res copy of the Hardcore Shutterbug photo:

Towerpower123's photo of 10 HY from across the Hudson River does give you a different perspective on the tower's construction progress. 10 HY (cranes at ~ photo center) is basically lost in the "noise" of the area, though the the yellow ad for the McDonald's drive-thru does stick out...

So you came here to cry a river instead? Want a tissue box? Whining will not get this project going any faster.

Wow, that is a lot of rebar! I guess it's a result of post-9/11 building codes or something.

Yes, it is a lot of rebar, IMHO.

There is some discussion of the fact that 10HY "is the city’s first all-concrete commercial skyscraper"
and lots of other tidbits, such as “We’re still in the baby steps of the whole project,” in this NYT piece on the structural engineer
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/04/re...n.html?hp&_r=0

The image I've reposted below is that of the excavation for Amtrak's Gateway project tunnel casing, so it is not directly related to 10 HY, though it is the same contractor: Tutor-Perini. Photo is looking north from the eastern (10th Ave) end of the excavation; the right end of the excavation is actually cut into 10th AVE on the right via drilling a secant pile wall down through the avenue above. I assume the cut/indent is so that they can connect this isolated tunnel casing to the Penn Station bathtub in the 202Xs w/o disturbing the then-existent HY retail podium:


Original credit is Geoff Butler/HY facebook page-April 2014

The hardcore shutterbug photo below is more recent (5/7) than the HY FB photos (April 2014), so you can compare them to see if they have actually advanced another floor. This photo is looking south with the cranes (and two caisson drills) in the foreground on the Amtrak Gateway project tunnel casing construction area.:

It really would not surprise me if 30 Hudson Yards started catching up with this, possibly even over take it!
I mean... it's taken like 8-9 months just rise what? 40-50m?

...until after 9/11...

The structural engineer/corporate vice chairman featured in the recent NYT article on the HY platform is also a lead eng on 10 HY:
Quote:
“I make the buildings stand up and stay up,” she said when asked for a reductive description of her far from fragile handiwork. “As an engineer, the last thing you want to hear about is a building falling down, but I don’t think it was until after 9/11 that the average person became aware that it was not an absolute fact that a skyscraper could stand up under any conditions.”
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/04/re...n.html?hp&_r=0

Quote:
She says it [10 HY] is the city’s first all-concrete commercial skyscraper. “At first everyone was resistant to using concrete,” she said. “But as it turned out, Coach loved the idea of having loft-like interiors that exposed some of the structural elements.”

Aine M. Brazil at the south tower of Hudson Yards, which will one day be a 900-foot-tall concrete-frame commercial office building. “I’m finding it fun to be involved in,” she says, “because it’s not just about creating the land beneath a development or the structure of a tower, it’s about creating an entire neighborhood.” Credit Karsten Moran for The New York Times


AND if you want to see MORE 10 HY rebar, concrete & forms remember that KPF's Justin Whiteford has plenty of photos. For example, May 2nd:

Based upon thejacko5's recent comment
Quote:
There is a lot to do before we will see anything beyond the street level at this tower. I think right now, TP is hoping to deliver platform steel in the fall.
& what I've seen of the overall site, I really doubt it.

But please come & see: the NYC area weather has turned "nice" & there is much varied entertainment in NY county.

Here's an example of an upcoming (fall, this year) enhancement for viewing, namely the opening of "High Line at the Rail Yards" and it's artistic aspect:

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/...50201916425732

Quote:
The state of constant construction, too, makes the area especially dynamic, Mr. Rojas said. "If you stop to think about it, it's the most contradictory thing: You're in relaxed, dreamy space, and then all around you is like a battle zone. People are taking pictures of construction sites."

He will begin his own sculptural construction later this year, but for now, he is spending some time at the site of his future project, getting a feel for it as well as New York.

"I'm still getting used to the city," he said. "The city as an entity is super-present. I feel it all the time."
And here's an example render of one the areas opening at the High Line @ the Rail Yards in the fall; the future 10 HY is in the background:

There's an irony in complaining because you are annoyed with what you perceive to be complaining from other people. (Hence the waahburger and french cries comment) Especially since the post you were complaining about was simply an observation on the pace of construction that you assumed had a certain tone. But whether someone is complaining about a project or not... Um who cares? We are all here because we are interested in this project and sometimes we wonder things like "why is this taking so long?" and yeah people might complain about that because they can't wait to see a project take shape and this is a great place for that because many of us (including I would guess you) know the feeling. So I don't know maybe stop being annoyed so easily and take your own advice.... Why is this project months behind anyway?
